From Dec. 1908 "Ardmore Statesman" published in early Ardmore, Carter Co., OK:
Mr. and Mrs. I. L. Pearl, who but recently arrived in Ardmore from spending the summer in Vermont, received the sad news last week of the serious illness of their son, J. A. Pearl, at Boston, Mass. Mr. Pearl left immediately for his son's bedside, but arrived only after his death. The deceased was a brother of Mrs. Goodwin of this city.
